Great Museum, Hidden near Old Airport. sn#1 Ford Jeep. Several WWII era tanks. Many in running condition, and used in local events. Staffed by veterans who can bring their experiences adding to the displays, making this an enjoyable visit.

Don't be turned off by the exterior conditions. This place is packed with a fantastic collection of unique military artifacts. We took a family visit on a rainy Sat with my 13yr old boy and he had a great time. Yes, I'd call that success.

History that the textbooks can't teach. Jeep #1 was by far my favorite, followed by the Bell Medivac helicopter.

really depends on how fast got want to go. We did it in about 1 1/2 hours, but I had a daughter that was in a hurry. I would recommend 2-3 hours to really read and enjoy all of it.

Yes it is. The aisles between exhibits are wide enough for wheelchairs. I think there was only one exhibit that had stairs as it was in an old rail car.
